    I am gonna try again - I think the first time I did this it disappeared.

    This is what I have been doing since December, 2009.

    Dancing Flowers - my 1st applique pieced about 3 years ago and decided to finally quilt it. Also a picture of my hand quilting. Now remember you guys, I have only been doing this for almost 4 years and have not made very many.

    The next ones I pieced before my dog had to have surgery and thank goodness since I can not go upstairs to sewing machine.

    Jan's Garden - for a friend of mine (hopefully for Christmas) - basted and ready to be quilted.

    Wintery Horse Fantasy - For me!! - needs to be basted and quilted.

    Desserts Box in Square - for a friend's wedding gift in October - started quilting it - not going to use border just black binding.

    those are great quilts, thanks for sharing, love them all, but the last is my favorite, i want to do one of them some day, but the thought of picking so many fabrics to go to together is holding me off.

    You can do it - just use a jelly roll and the colors are already matched for you - that is all the pattern calls for.

    Thanks everyone for the very nice compliments. Probably middle of week I can get back to quilting - I have been working on crocheting some doilies for 2 friends of mine for the birthdays.

    Thanks for the compliments - I think I am finally getting a little bit better at it (piecing wise anyway). Come this winter I will be trying pot holders so I can at least try machine quilting even though I love to hand quilt. Thanks again to you all for the support. I have learned so much from this board even though I don't post very often. Just love you guys. This is my guild and love it.
